Abstract

The Peñol Boulder is one of the most spectacular destinations in the surrounding area of Medellín. The 200-meter-high monolith can be climbed with a staircase of 740 steps. Enjoy breath-taking views over the stunning surroundings full of green mountains and blue lakes. The village of Guatapé is famous for its church and its beautiful, colourful paintings that decorate the houses of the village. This day trip starts with a scenic drive through the Eastern Highlands of Antioquia and a visit at the replica of the old Peñol village. Here you find typical Paisa country houses with colourful wooden balcones and pristine facades along a charming church and main square. Get to know the history of the region before you travel to the rock to climb the 740 stairs of the Peñol Boulder. Be rewarded with awesome views over the unique landscapes of the Guatapé lake district. Afterwards enjoy a delicious typical Colombian lunch on the waterfront of the Guatapé reservoir and take your time to relay, stroll around exploring the colourful village centre of Guatapé. All houses in the centre are colourfully painted and tell a story of a village tradition. In the afternoon discover the lake on a private boat ride before heading back to Medellín.
